*Namely my celebrity crush, Ciara*
Lena Dunham is on the cover of this February’s Vogue. This is cool and all because she is super talented and I’ve seen every episode of Girls and I go to her alma mater.
But what about Ciara?!
Every month that someone who is not black and, in my opinion, a major contributor to the fashion world gets a Vogue cover, I am disappointed. I’m disappointed a lot because I read Vogue every month.
I mean, come on Anna Wintor! Ciara sat next to you at fashion week and she has publically spoken about wanting a cover. Not to mention Ciara’s fashion forward wardrobe and that she’s the offical muse of french haute couture fashion house, Givenchy.
…Britney Spears has even got a cover…
I just really feel like fashion-qualified black women are being over looked by Vogue. And I don’t want to start sounding self-righteous or radical, but Vogue really does have a bad history of this.
Does anyone know Donyale Luna, the first black cover model in 1966?
Vogue probably doesn’t want us to talk about that issue. Due to the racist ideas of the times, Luna’s nose and mouth were covered up.
Fashion articles always give props to Naomi Campbell as “one of the first” black female Vogue covers. But I don’t really know if thats an accomplishment considering she was popular in the late 80s and 90s. I mean, hot and fashionable black women have been around just as long as white women. Definitely before the late 80s.
So idk, I think we should start a petition for Ciara to get a cover. Or maybe I’ll start dressing like Britney Spears in fashion protest.
